A bit of a Flaneur
Yes, I would say that's what I am, a bit of a Flaneur. Even as a teen I would spend hours strolling around the cities or towns I lived. In Washington DC I just walked, 6 hours one day and 7 the next day. The Arcades Project points out a "flâneur" is completely at home in this cross between interior-exterior because his own personal interior-exterior boundaries are also ambiguous".
Yes, yes! I love signs, wall ornaments, nature's art in its bounty, cracks in a wall, architecture, unexpected art forms.
It's a bit harder to be a Flaneur in the middle of Ohio and in a tiny village.
I do miss the old stone walls, the architecture of England, the pub signs, indoor markets, street art, victorian ironwork, graveyards and street scenes of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
